about the already troubled santa clara jail after the death of another inmate. >> stephanie chuang live in san jose with what we're learning so far. steph? >> we know that a male inmate died here in custody yesterday. we're told by the jail that the deputy found him unresponsive around 10:30 yesterday morning. a sheriff's sergeant saying that the man was given cpr and first aid by jail staff. san jose firefighters and paramedics arrived but were not able to resuscitate the inmate and he was pronounced dead just after 11:30 in the morning. what killed him is still unknown but this comes a month after another inmate 30-year-old michael tyree was beaten to death by three deputies. he was behind bars for drug and theft charges and found dead in his cell on august 27. those three correctional officers have been charged with murder. they are matthew ferrous, 27,
jara lubrin and rodriguez 27. accused of assault, beating another inmate one via last month. two deputies posted bail and the third one is set for a property bond hearing this afternoon and all three are set to enter a plea in about two weeks. but as far as this most recent inmate death we don't know the identity and family is being notified and we were hoping to learn more from the sheriff's office this morning. >> stephanie, thank you very much. 4:33 now. new this morning, two men shot dead in richmond last night and now police trying to piece together what happened. police say shots spotter reported four gunshots around 8:30 on natalie court near san pablo avenue. when police got there, they found two men shot to death. so far police do not have a motive or a suspect in mind. any anyone with information is urged to call police. also new this morning, crews made quick work of an overnight brush fire in hayward.
that fire started just before 3:30 near the corner of middle lane and his perrian boulevard. took a small crew of firefighters 20 minutes to put out the fire and the cause is under investigation. no one was hurt. now to an investigative unit exclusive that impacts hundreds of thousands of students across the bay area. it all has to do with when schools decide it is appropriate to contact the police on their students. >> some students are winding up with criminal records they cannot erase for what some might describe as childish misbehavior. investigative reporter looks at this and joins us with more. >> uncovered a trepd in the bay queria where kids are being criminalized for some call just minor misbehavior. to find out how often the schools call the police on children we collected from 20. our investigation found that black students and students with disabilities were referred to
police at disproportionately higher rates compared to other children. officers at schools can give a child what is called a juvenile citation. equivalent to an arrest and goes on a child's criminal record. now legal advocates tell us this is often done for routine misbehavior like talking back to a teacher. tonight we dig deeper into the long term impact and investigate one bay area school district that had a practice of calling police on its students at a rate higher than nearly every school district in the entire country. that's tonight at 11:00. back to you. >> thank you very much. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call 1-888-996-tips or send them an e-mail. i got a tip. watch out for the clouds because they seem to be reappearing almost as if by magic, kari. good morning. >> good morning. i think it will do a lot of good across the bay area, except for bring us any rain. it will keep our temperatures

er bees in the bay area. the bee's sting is no more lethal and their behavior no more aggressive than their european honey bee relatives, but africanized bees on occasion do kill. >> the problem arises if you disturb a hive or a nest. in which case they're easier to disturb. >> if swarmed, experts say run and keep running. these bees will pursue you longer than other honey bees, but will eventually stop. experts emphasize such attacks are very rare. >> good to keep things in perspective. coming up next, get ready for a new emergency alert coming to a cell phone near you. governor brown signing a new law to use technology to help catch hit and run drivers. got a tip for nbc bay area's investigative unit? call 1-888-996-tips or e-mail

suffered a serious injury due to a hit and run accident. the agency would need specific information about the suspect or the suspect vehicle. the alert would be activated within a specific approved area, presumably around where the accident happened. >> i think it's a very good tool. i mean, we have the amber alert. >> reporter: a chp spokesperson tells nbc 7 the yellow alert system seems like a good tool, but these cases will still be extremely difficult to solve. he said usually there is very little information to go on after the accident. often they don't have a vehicle a description or a license plate number. also, even if the suspect car is found, how do you prove who drove it? still, state officials believe the new system will make our streets safer. craig robinson hopes so, too. >> you can get somebody to, you know, say, well i just saw that car and it looks like the car you described and, you know, please get on it. >> that was candace wynn
